Delta and veil tail, veil tails are calmer than other fin types.

CTs. :)
There are NO DIFFERENCES between tail types, just a rumor. :)

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

HM Plakats, I love how they look, plus you can have slightly more current.

Darn, I can't vote for more then one....lol xD

Well, I'm really a sucker for just about anything with a nice form, CTs especially. I've always had a soft spot for CTs with nice, full fins and even Rays <3 Close behind though would be the HMPK/PK because of their spunkyness.

Veiltail for life! O_O

I'm not sure why veiltail is my fav, but I like the basic look. There is more finnage than Plakat, but it isn't extreme like with halfmoon, doubles, and the like. I guess I like fish that are showy, but not showy-showy. XD

Not that that stopped me from adopting 1 doubletail, 1 Plakat, and 1 Halfmoon that needed a new home. :3

Haha. Yeah, sorry. I'm trying to use this poll to help me figure out which tail types I should breed. I'd like to breed som nice VTs and DelTs with more variety in color and pattern (as well as HMs and CTs or maybe HMPK and DT) but I'm not sure there will be a place for them to go after I breed them. I'd like to sell them as pets, but I need to know the demand before I decide wether to breed them or not. This will also help me to decide if I want to breed HMPKs or DTs too.

Are you sure you want to breed VTs? People won't buy a $20 VT if there's a VT in the pet store. :/ Well, good luck! I'm breeding in around 2-3 years. >.< CTs are going to need soft water so their rays won't curl BTW. So many types to choose. ^^

Yeah, I'm okay with that, the VTs will mostly be for fun and for bringing a better variety of VTs to pet stores for future people that will be on this site. :) I just want like a dollar or so for them. I'm also going to try to get my LPSs to put up some info on careing for bettas properly near the bettas that they're selling. And I'm gonna try to get them to include a Betta Splendens Care Sheet with each betta purchase.

-EDIT- I've been told that its hard to keep a CTs' rays straight, but I really want to try because they're so pretty! And I don't see many good ones for sale anywhere (I mean they're pretty, but not good for show) and I want to change that.
